Hello Feeling Special!!

I just purchased a 2013 Specialized Allez Compact Sport used on Craigslist. Previous bike was a Giant Sedona.

After a short ride I'm jazzed. Looking forward to meeting you all.

Rugged warhorse of a bike. I purchased it when I was larger than the 260 I'm carrying. Never had a flat or any other problem. Heavy bike, front shock won't lock, a drag when you want to stand up and go! What is your intended use?
